Can’t stop the knit

Thursday, 22 July, 2010

I am on the one track mind express to knitting town at the moment.

A couple weeks ago I kinda challenged myself to knit five sweaters in two months – from the beginning of July to the end of August, mostly because there’s a number of cropped or short-sleeved sweaters I want to knit right now and it would be nice to finish them before it gets too cold to wear them.

So even though I’m usually all about knitting I got even more down to business and knit Watershed in a week, which is sweater #3 of the month and sweater #1 of my five sweater challenge. Here’s a sneak peek, even though it hasn’t been blocked yet and doesn’t look like much:

And I started on Goodale, which I highly recommend if you enjoy endless rows of stockinette.

Tuesday night I finished the yoke and separated the sleeves. If all goes to plan I should have this baby finished by next Wednesday so I can start my next project, which I think is going to be Abalone. I want to have it finished by the time I leave for vacation on August 10th. I’m heading to Santa Fe.

    You & Jodi are cracking me up on Twitter!

    Love the color of your Watershed. I recently got back in the knitting groove myself after a time of low knitting mojo…feels good!

    Hi! I love your collection of short-sleeved cardigans, and was wondering if you have any tips on searching for patterns like them on Ravelry.

    Thanks for these beautiful little inspirations!

    Ohh I can’t wait to see Watershed blocked! I’m loving the color and the lace front panels. You are rocking out this challenge so far!
